Officer dead after OH nursing home shooting

The gunman was in a wooded area behind the nursing home when he encountered two passers-by, whom he temporarily took hostage. No nursing home residents were injured. Thorp said he assumes [Chief] Disario had engaged the suspect.

Disario, responding to a report of a man with a gun, apparently encountered the gunman in that area.

Investigators identified the slain Kirkersville police chief as 36-year-old Steven Eric Disario, who had been on the job for only three weeks and had six children, with a seventh on the way. For a shooter to get into the locked facility, Casto says a person would need someone to let them in or have access to the code.

Kirkersville Elementary School is on lockdown and will remain closed for the day, reports say.

A total of four people were killed - one being the suspected shooting suspect - in a shooting Friday morning at a nursing home in Kirkersville, Ohio, east of Columbus.

Homeland Security, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Licking County Sheriff's Office are responding to the 200 block of East Main Street in Kirkersville. According to WOSU's Esther Honig, that officer was Kirkersville police chief Robert E. Chamberlain II.

The Pine Kirk nursing home, the Dispatch reported, is a 24-bed facility that serves people with both physical and behavioral health challenges. A heavy police presence is still located at the school.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich sent his condolences to the officer's loved ones. Parents should NOT head to the elementary school. Those students were reportedly taken to Watkins Middle School. "Thinking of the officer, officer's family & all involved", said Senator Sherrod Brown (D) on Twitter.
